We went to the Mall of Asia on Saturday, the 1st of February.
Let me just say that the malls in Manila are pretty alike to malls in Malaysia. There isn’t much difference between malls everywhere in the world really. Same shops, more or less.
But MoA has a particular store that sells stuff that’s strictly made in the Philippines, so we spent a good few hours there. I got a few postcards and small gifts too, I’ll snap a picture of those later.
My favourite thing about Filipino design is the usage of pineapple thread otherwise known as Piña. It’s a breathable material as a result. Their stitching work here is LOVELY. I took a bunch of pictures:
up close details:
The clothes tend to be quite formal and usually used for weddings and special occasions. My mom got one for my brother.
We ended up eating a bunch of things that day, some good, some not quite.
and yup, that evening my mom and I went to Robinsons to do a little more shopping and got stuff for my dad and brother.
